Due to the downturn in the global economy, many businesses are having to look hard at how they can survive or emerge in stronger positions. In this issue, we will look at laws in different jurisdictions in this area. What is the current regmine, and any upcoming laws and developments, in particular to cross-border insolvency proceedings? Any pitfalls clients need to be aware of and any advice on how to avoid them?
